Whether you’ve always been a health guru, or you’ve recently hopped aboard the Wellness Train, chances are this year has made you more health conscious than ever before. So, how can you make a long term investment in both your mind and body? A hot tub of course! We’ve put together a quick little list to help you understand how many ways a hot tub can make you a healthier person!
Weight Control for Wellness
If you’re one of the half of all Americans who’ve tried to lose weight at some point in their lives, clearly you’re not alone. But amid the latest diet fads, pills, and workout DVDs it’s hard to find things that actually support your weight loss journey. Until now that is! What if we told you there’s a tool to help you along your path to a healthy weight and it’s even considered fun? That’s right, a hot tub is an excellent addition to your weight loss regimen.
A spa session decreases the stress hormones, while allowing those “feel good” hormones to up production. This means that you’ll finally be able to lose weight, and gain muscle when you exercise, while curbing those ever-prevailing carb cravings.
Less Stress = More Health
Speaking of stress, did you know that there are long-term repercussions from not dealing with chronic stress? Many people make the mistake of assuming that stress only affects your mental state, and while it definitely does that, it can also harm your physical health. In addition to being one of the leading causes of depression and anxiety, chronic stress has been linked to:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Abnormal heart rhythms
- Heart attack
Take back control of your health by unwinding with a hot tub!
Natural Pain Relief
Whether you need to treat a short-term injury, or you’re battling with a chronic illness like an autoimmune disease, you’ll find the natural pain relief you need in a hot tub. Since hot tubs were originally invented to treat arthritis pain, it’s no wonder they work so well. Plus, the only side effects you’ll be dealing with is rest and relaxation!
Safer Gym Setting
Are you not quite where you want to be strength wise? Or, maybe your balance is a bit questionable, making getting the necessary exercise for your health next to impossible? All you have to do is move that fitness routine to your spa. Simply do your stretches in the warmth, while the water helps support your body. And when you’re ready to add more advanced motions, the water will provide resistance for an effective workout. Added bonus? The heat and hydrotherapy massage you’ll enjoy afterwards combats post-workout soreness.
Germ Fighting Superpower
All year long, humans combat illnesses, be it allergies, cold and flu, or pneumonia. So how can you protect yourself? By releasing all your stresses into the swirling waters of your spa. In fact, regular soaking sessions help your body stimulate white blood cell production — making you a literal germ-fighting superhero.
